MIDVALE, Utah (AP) - A man is suspected of setting his own house ablaze in November.

The Deseret News reports (https://bit.ly/1NXZHLG) Christopher Wendall Jensen was arrested Friday. Charges filed Dec. 4 against Jensen include aggravated arson.

Police say three officers and a Taser were needed to arrest Jensen, who was combative when authorities arrived.

Charging documents say Jensen dropped a flaming cardboard box next to curtains in his home’s dining room on Nov. 11, then tossed pizza boxes on top of the fire.

Authorities say the damage was extensive.
